Here you will find all the information you need to maintain your Brand Card.
After the responsible contact person has "opened" the brand card initially, he/she will register as a participant (preview link or regular ticket link after FEB 15th), then enter the ITB NOW platform and go to the "own organization" (right dropdown menue). If both email-accounts are matching (!) - this person will be the first contact linked to the own company brand card.
Inform the visitor about your founding year, number of employees and the industry your company operates in.
Step-by-step for Main Contact Person:
Check the E-Mail you received from “ITB-Registration” (also check your Spam folder). In this E-mail you find under 2. Your ticket vouchers the respective amount of ticket vouchers included in your exhibitor package.
Choose one of these ticket codes for you, respectively the person that has officially been named as “contact person” in the registration of the Brand Card. Please note that the E-mail address used during the registration has to be the same you use in the following steps. If the person that has been assigned as contact person in the registration does not register via ticket shop, no other employee will be able to be added to the Brand Card.
Go to Ticketshop (https://www.itb.com/ITBBerlinNOW/Tickets/) and follow the procedure to officially register by entering the voucher code. You will receive a confirmation.
Go to https://www.itb-now.com/
Enter the same E-mail address you have used for the registration in the ticket shop and log-in to ITB Berlin NOW.
If you have registered with the same e-mail address as the one used in the registration and the ticket shop, your profile should automatically be linked to your Brand Card. You can access your Brand Card via “My Organization” on the right side in the Communication Center.
Go to “Back Office” and click on Team. Here you can add any registered person at ITB Berlin NOW as team member to your Brand Card. Please note that each team member has to be registered at the platform before you can add them.
Steps for further employees / Team Members:
Before you start adding Team Members please make sure your profile has the Networking Function activated - otherwise you won’t be able to find anyone on the platform! See example below:
In case you would like to make your profile invisible, you can deactivate the function “Allow people to find me” on your profile:
Forward each code to an employee/colleague who shall have access to ITB Berlin NOW.
Have each colleague follow step 3-5. Please note that their e-mail addresses have to be unique and everyone should use their own e-mail address.
Once registered at ITB Berlin NOW, the main Contact Person (see above) can add colleagues to the Brand Card via the Back Office.
The address you entered during registration appears here. You can change the displayed address.

Back Office features are only available to the team members that are listed as part of the organization of the Brand Card. These features are the same for alll of the members, and cannot be applied differently.
When a guest or normal visitor goes to your Brand Card and clicks "Register Interest" there, you need to go to your Back Office on your Brand Card and look under "Contact Request". There you will find all requests, whether guest or normal visitor.
For Contact and Meeting Requests in your back office we recommend using the “share” function.

The Exhibitor Show Room is available for all exhibitors – no matter what package.
Entering the (public) Show Room is similar to entering a booth at a trade show. It is an audio/video/chat room where the visitor and anyone else who "enters this booth" has the opportunity to get in direct contact with the exhibitor's selected staff. Exhibitor staff are identified for all attendees in the attendee list. In your back office you can decide which employees are available for the Show Room.
These staff members must be actively present in the Show Room to welcome guests. We recommend having at least one staff member there at all times to ensure the Show Room is activated and available.
The Show Room will remain open for visitors even if they navigate to other areas on the ITB Berlin NOW platform. A visitor has to actively leave the Show Room by clicking on the red handset (hang up)
Functions are similar to e.g. Zoom/MS teams; people can share their video/audio, screen, chat, etc.
To display your Team Members on the Show Room please make that the tabs “Networking”; “Allow people to find me” and “Standby Showroom” are activated, as per picture below:
Attention: your Show Room will be deactivated if all your Team Members turn off the “Standby Showroom” option.
Show visitors what your product portfolio entails and where you operate. A well maintained category overview gives visitors a first indication on what you as a company offer overall. A Drop-Down menu offers you the possibility to select from various predefined terms in the sections "topics" and "destinations". Use the search function if you search for specific items instead of scrolling through them all.
Our tip: Prepare your presence and visibility by editing only relevant categories in the profile settings of your company’s Brand Card. You may choose between topics and destinations and provide visitors with information about your company’s offer. Be aware that the chosen categories represent your respective source market. Your Brand Card will then appear when visitors filter the respective category in the Show Floor.

The platform profile of the responsible contact person for a companies Brand Card will automatically be linked to the Brand Card when the person is initially accessing the platform with the matching email (the person responsible for the Brand Card = first person logged in with the matching mail-adress).
Keywords are an essential tool in order to increase your chance to be found in the Show Floor via the search function. The search function entails every word that appears somewhere in the entire ITB Berlin NOW platform. Words that are not mentioned in any other section in your Brand Card can be added here, so when visitors actively search for a word you edited here, your Brand Card will be proposed in the search results. These keywords will not be displayed in your Brand Card.
Add additional website links here, for e.g. the homepage of your company and services.
The logo appears in your Brand Card in the Show Floor in tile and list view, as well as in your Brand Card detail page. Please make sure to use the right format and note this information.
